Long Way Round star Charley Boorman has fallen foul of theives for the second times in two weeks, and hopes you can help him recover his bike.

His BMW R1150GS Adventure was stolen sometime last night (Wednesday, May 4) from the car park of the Hunting Lodge Hotel in Cottington, Northants (near Rockingham race circuit).

It's a standard bike, but it does have some distinguishing features. It's been fitted with a GPS unit mount holder, there's some damage to the plastic cover on the right hand piston cover, and the right hand rear indicator cover is missing. The registration bumber is RO 04 FLP.

"I've had the GS for four months to prepare for the Dakar next year. Two weeks agao someone stole the fairings from my Ducati, and now the BMW has gone. I parked it up next to some other BMWs in a well-lit car park, but it had gone when i woke up. Apparently a number of bikes have gone missing in that area," said Boorman.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of the bike, call Dan Thornton from MCN on 01733 468013, or email as soon as possible, and we'll pass the info onto Charley and the police.
